Dear Read­ers . . .

The People's Friend Special - - CONTENTS - An­gela Gilchrist, Ed­i­tor.

Wel­come to our brand-new Spe­cial, which in­cludes a fan­tas­tic 24-page mag­a­zine full of colour­ing-in de­signs in­spired by the nat­u­ral world. If you haven’t al­ready dis­cov­ered this won­der­fully re­lax­ing and cre­ative pas­time, now’s your chance.

We also have 14 short sto­ries by favourite au­thors such as Emma Can­ning, Wendy Clarke and Vivien Hamp­shire. In our big-name fic­tion slot, TV pre­sen­ter Pam Rhodes has writ­ten the de­light­ful “Cham­pagne And Shell­fish” es­pe­cially for the “Friend”, and don’t miss Alison Carter’s thrilling eight-page mur­der mystery, “Drama!”, set against the back­drop of the BBC’s Broad­cast­ing House.

Also in this is­sue is the first part in our guide to learn­ing to cro­chet, de­li­cious break­fast recipes to make and puzzles to test your wits. Our travel writ­ers have lots of ideas to in­spire you, too. Dave McFadzean ex­plores the Galloway town of Dal­beat­tie, Dianne Board­man vis­its the Houses of Par­lia­ment and Wil­lie Shand sees skilled crafts­men in ac­tion at the Spey­side Cooper­age, while Neil McAl­lis­ter boards a cruise to the Antarc­tic, and TV per­son­al­ity Diana Mo­ran takes on the Trek China Chal­lenge.
